5 Reasons to Never Buy Alaska Real Estate without an Agent
When it comes to buying a home in Alaska, you have many options laid in front of you— from the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, to the location, to your initial offer. However, one option you will want to avoid altogether is the decision to go it alone, without an Alaskan real estate agent on your side.
Purchasing a home may seem like something you can handle yourself, but after doing all of the research, you will find the process is best left to the pros.
Below are five reasons why you should never buy a home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, North Pole, or beyond without the help of a real estate agent:
They have the experience
You could be on the brink of purchasing your second, maybe even fifth, home, but keep in mind that real estate agents have been doing this for years, some maybe even decades. Navigating the Alaska real estate market, home purchases and home sales day in and day out means agents know every possible step and hiccup that can arise in the process.
They have access
You can search for homes online, but did you know that real estate agents have access to even more homes? A real estate agent can find your dream home that may be hiding in plain sight. After all, it is our job to know the in's and out's of every neighborhood.
They do the negotiating
As you move further into the home buying process in Alaska, you will notice that there are dozens of parties to negotiate with. And with the market heating up, those negotiations are going to be a bit more heated than they have been in the past. A Realtor knows how to seal the deal with your best interests in mind— Remember, we've done this before!
They have connections
With our years of experience as real estate experts in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, North Pole, and the surrounding areas, Madden Real Estate can help direct you to the best lenders, inspectors, moving companies and more. Realtors have a wide net of contacts that can help you with just about everything in your home buying journey.
They can provide advice
Your real estate agent is indeed searching listings for you, negotiating contracts and marketing your home (if you're selling also)— but they are also here to provide advice and listen to your concerns. This is the biggest purchase you will make, don't you want someone in your corner who knows the ropes?
